Accommodated: Thorn Tree Bush Camp/ Similar
We depart from Johannesburg between 06h00 – 08h00 to allow for various collection points. Our route takes us through the wide-open spaces of the Highveld, down the escarpment and through the scenic Lowveld area. We stop for lunch en-route (own expense) and reach the Kruger National Park and Pretoriuskop Rest Camp in the afternoon. (Guests flying into Nelspruit’s Kruger Mpumalanga airport, wishing to join the shuttle, need to land between 11h00 & 12h45 and be aware that they may have to wait a little for the shuttle to arrive from Johannesburg.
Private transfers are available to guests booked on flights at alternative times at an additional charge.) After settling into our accommodations, you go out on your first game drive which is a SAN Parks sunset drive. A sunset drive affords you the opportunity to see nocturnal animals that are more active at night and the Park’s rangers can return after the normal gate closing times. Note that these drives take place in one of the Kruger Park’s vehicles with a Park’s ranger. This is not a private game drive and there may be other guests on this drive. (Children under 6 years of age are not permitted on open vehicle drives.) Dinner is a three-course meal, served al fresco at our camp within Pretoriuskop. Wine is served with dinner, but guests are welcome to bring along additional / alternative drinks which can be purchased at the shop.

Overnight: Thorn Tree Bush Camp
Thorn Tree Bush Camp in The Dinokeng Game Reserve in Hammanskraal, Gauteng, is for the true nature lover where you can enjoy the tranquillity of nature, where the stars are brighter at night, where lion roars, jackal bark, bush babies cry, owls screeches and the insects sing and much more are often heard at night.
Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life, enjoy a braai under the stars with the sounds of the wild surrounding you, or take a game drive to view the BIG 5. Enjoy our beautiful sunrises and sunsets that colour the skies above with a pallete of brilliant colours.
